Spinal cord injuries are devastating to an individual's future. Accidents
that cause spinal injury can happen in an instant, but the physical and
emotional consequences can last for a lifetime. Those more fortunate are
able to overcome any physical impairment resulting from the spinal injury
with proper medical care and rehabilitation. The spinal cord is one of
the most important relay points of the body. It works closely with the
brain to send nerve signals to the muscles and organs in the rest of the body.
An injury to the spine can cause dramatic disturbances in the nervous system.
These injuries can lead to injuries such as extreme weakness, numbness,
difficulty in walking, a loss of bladder and bowel control, ongoing severe
headaches, or permanent injuries such as
paralysis. A heavy blow to the spinal cord often leads to a complete loss of function
below the point of injury.
Sadly, many spinal injuries could have been avoided. Car and
are one of the major causes of spinal injury.
and reckless driving often plays a part in causing the accident that result
in serious spinal injuries. In such a case, you or your loved one is entitled
to file a personal injury claim.
